Rock has-been Morrissey: "Bush should have died, not Reagan"

The headline says it all.

The solo artist was on the last leg of his European tour in Dublin, when he announced -- to much cheering and applause -- the death of President Ronald Reagan. Then the singer said something downright offensive (to which he got even bigger cheers and applause from the crowd).

"Bush should have died, not Reagan..."
Maybe he's trying out for the new opening act for the Dixie Chicks.

Then again, there are quite a few moonbats in THIS country with the same view.

You know you're getting old when you say "Who?" about somebody who's already a has-been.

Don't feel bad -- I'm in that same category...

He shouldn't be surprised if he gets a knock on his front door by Secret Service.

Morrissey is right. What has Bush truly done for anyone? Regan at least was a more humane individual and deserved life, GW Bush has taken away so much from this country and is determined to do the same to the world.

Ex Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulraney at Reagan’s funeral: “In one of his poems, McGee, thinking of his birthplace, wrote poignantly, “Am I remembered in Erin? I charge you speak me true. Has my name a sound, a meaning in the scenes my boyhood knew?” Ronald Reagan will not have to worry about Erin because they remember him well and affectionately there. Indeed they do.”

Not by the local clowns at Morrissey’s gig in Dublin! And Morrissey has the gall to own a home in LA - wonder if the neighbours will welcome him next time?
